There are certain times of the year that are downright miserable for those who suffer from allergies. Being outside is the worst and sometimes, the only way to get away from the symptoms is to go inside and hole up until the air clears. However, if you have older windows, you might not even be safe in your own home. Windows with air leaks can let those allergens into your house and make things just as bad inside as out. Here are a few ways that replacement windows in Dallas, TX can keep allergens out of the home:
No Leaks And Cracks
Older windows tend to leak air and if the air from outside, with its pollen and pollutants, can get through, so can the allergens. The best thing for allergies is clean air with plenty of filtering. You can’t get that when you have leaks in your windows. Replacement windows keep the allergens out of the home because they are sealed tightly against the house. Nothing gets through the windows so you can clean the air inside your home and keep it that way.
Better Indoor Air For Allergies
It’s hard to find air anywhere that works well for those with the worst allergies. But during those seasons, keeping windows and doors closed and the air conditioning on (even if it’s not that hot) can reduce the allergens in the air within your home. If you seal up your house with replacement windows, you can get a good filter on your AC (a hypo-allergenic one) and clean the allergens out of the air. Of course, you’re going to have to open the door to get in and out, but the more you can limit the outdoor air from coming in, the better the indoor air will be for those with allergies.
Keep Energy Bills Low, Too
It’s hard to pay for allergy shots, medications, and other items if you have high energy bills to pay for as well. The best part of replacement windows, other than the reduction in your allergy suffering, is that you will have lower energy bills. When you save energy by locking up the home, you have lower bills and further comfortable temperatures in your home. With low energy bills, you can afford further allergy treatments to get your symptoms under control.
